Emma Watson is an advocate of feminism and gender equality. This Harry Potter alum has been selected no 1 on a men’s lifestyle magazine, Askmen’s list of women.
AskMen strives to “empower young men to become someone they would admire.” For the last 15 years, this magazine had been posting a list of Top 99 Most Desirable Women.
The publisher of this magazine, James Bassil declared that this year their goal is to make a list of 99 women, who want to do something for the sake of their society.
He said, “This year’s list is not only a reflection of a shift in the media, but also a shift in modern male thinking. We wanted to steer away from ‘hot’ lists and highlight women who have demonstrated a sheer influence in their industry. We were looking for women who are doing something new this year, something that demonstrates their versatility and raw talent.”
Emma Watson has several reasons to become no 1 on Askmen’s list. Such as, she is a U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador, she gave a powerful speech at the United Nations, she is involved in the HeForShe pro-gender equality campaign, she took part in a Facebook chat on International Women’s Day and she got British Artist of the Year honor at the Britannia Awards, which she dedicated to her pet hamster who died a horrific death on the set of one of the Harry Potter movies.
